Hi everyone! I am hoping to move to Italy one day and of course I study the language whenever I can, but a big problem is, I have quite a short attention span. 


Does anyone know the best methods of studying for someone with a short attention span like me?


Thankyou very much!

Hi Charlotte. What exactly do you mean by short attention span - you get bored easily? If that's the case, the best remedy is probably to study stuff the really interests you. For example, listen to podcasts about your favorite topics, read books or articles in your favorite genres and watch interesting movies in your target language. You can also do things like play games, chat with friends, and just do fun stuff in your L2. What you lose in efficiency you can make up for by naturally paying more attention.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
